Being in the military is not a very easy career. There are many things that we do in the military that many people will never understand, but they need to be done in order to protect the many freedoms that we enjoy in this country. Because of this, it is very difficult to earn an education in the military, but with a little commitment and a lot of encouragement, it can be done. “President Obama has charged every US citizen and military service member with the responsibility to create that better nation, through individual education.” (Miller, 2009). It can be very hard sometimes to take classes because of the military.
Many jobs that are being filled, are being filled by military personnel that have left the service. Many businesses, like Wal-Mart, are offering recently separated military personnel employment. Compulsory military service helps a young person gain maturity. So many people enter into the military with a mentality of not wanting to grow up, but shortly after entering, they realize they have to become an adult and have to make sure they are taking steps that will make them think about their consequences and future endeavors. Military service helps a person with everyday life, not only does it help someone plan out their life
I appreciate America's veterans because they fought in our wars. I appreciate that because they were risking their lives for America. Millions of Americans are serving in the military to stand up and keep our country safe from attacks against our country. They sacrifice their freedoms to defend ours. They have to leave their families for long periods of time to be in war and combat.
The First Day of Basic Training The first day of Basic Training is long and hard and having gone through that day myself many years ago I still recall the fear that I could feel deep down in my bones. Sixteen years later I am on the other side of that first day as a Drill Sergeant, seeing the same fear in the trainees’ eyes. Many people see joining the Army as an easy way out and sometimes make the decision without giving basic training a second thought. So it is no surprise that once they arrive on camp, they are shocked and really just rather go home. Pick up day is the day we first meet our new trainees.
Prisoners Struggle in Re-entering Society Every year, millions of men and women leave America’s state and federal prisons and local jails with the hope of a successful return to society, they face the obstacles of trying to adjust to the freedom, temptations, responsibilities, and struggles of their society. Returning Prisoners rely on their families for housing and support immediately after their release. They lose many employment opportunities. Released prisoners have a hard time finding and maintaining employment in the year following reentry, and the released prisoners who find employment generally work in low-skill jobs or are employed at much lower wages than they earned prior to incarceration. Prisoners also often live with their parents or siblings after release.
There are many things about life in the civilian world that many take for granted, such as seeing your children grow and the differences of personality of everything around you. The most important aspect of civilian life that military personnel miss out on is their family. Your family is a part of you, and most people require the support of their families to survive. Soldiers who are deployed can miss a year or eighteen months of their family’s lives. Civilians likely take for granted waking each morning to see their baby grow a little larger, whereas someone in the military might leave an infant on assignment, and come back to a walking talking
It may seem morbid, but consider that in an important position, such as an infantryman, than their job not only requires punctuality for the successful completion of a mission, but also showing his brothers in arms that he is capable of being dependable and one can even steal time itself. The infantryman has many responsibilities in his daily life and being punctual to meet his ‘hard times’ is one of them. A hard time is a pre-set time that the infantryman is given to be at a prearranged area with the right equipment and uniform. Being on time daily instills discipline in the infantryman. Punctuality shows that he is adept at displaying competence in his skills.
(Canon, 2011) Moving and switching schools so frequently can cause a wealth of problems for the military child. Changing schools often can have a negative effect on schooling on its own. If classes in one location are behind classes in another location the child has to catch up to the rest of the class. If some classes do not transfer to another school the child may have to retake classes or even postpone graduation. Research has shown that frequently changing schools has a cumulative effect on academics, often putting a child who moves frequently a year or more behind students who do not move as much.
Military Life vs Civilian Life B. Anderson English Comp 102 Today, our military is has a large number of people that signed up to protect our country, and the soldier is the one who is on active duty they have families that are with them for moral support as well and to help ease the mental situations that comes with the military such as being away from home extended periods of time and missing the ones you care about. Another portion that the military consist of would be the civilian population, and of course if there were no civilians we would not have no use for the military, so there is a very important role the military have and for the most part I found that there have been a lot of misunderstandings when it comes to the lifestyle of the military. Since I’ve been in army one of the biggest misunderstandings would have to be the pay the military gets. And for some reason a lot of people simply think they get paid a lot more than they do and that’s simply not the case and maybe because the benefits are very good to say the least, but the civilian lifestyle and the military lifestyle have plenty of differences, for one the military have a huge responsibility, dealing with protecting our country and the soldiers have to go through a series of training daily along with the physical training daily as well to stay in shape for the missions of the military, and the civilians have important jobs as well but the stress levels while in the military maybe a little more intense, because sometimes you really don’t know what to expect, but you just have to be strong mentally as well. Some civilian jobs are stressful but it’s a different stress when you have your life on the line.
